Veteran Todd Herremans waived by Indianapolis Colts

Todd Herremans is a free agent.

The Colts cut the guard on Tuesday, according to the league transaction wire. Herremans, 33, played in just eight games this year.

While All-Pro Evan Mathis is faring a little better in Denver, the move illustrates Chip Kelly's line of thinking when he revamped the offensive line at the beginning of this season. Mathis, Herremans and Jason Kelce were arguably the best interior in football a year ago, but the dream team was broken up thanks to contract squabbles and free agency.

Kelly was initially roasted for getting rid of his stalwarts and although it may have contributed to some growing pains, his plan to work in some younger, cheaper players seems to be kicking into gear late in the season. Herremans went from starter to game-day scratch over the span of a few weeks in Indiana.

So it goes for the Colts, who were hoping for a plug-and-play guy on a deal worth up to $3.5 million but ended up needing to find their answers elsewhere.
